Normal mode high scores?
My high score run, which also was my first victory, totaled to 4883. Can you beat it?
Easy mode players need not post.

Maybe one of these "beat my High Score loozers" threads should be stickied so we don't have to endure a new one every week?

There is no point in comparing scores because of how scores are calculated. The three factors are scrap colected, ships defeated and beacons explored. So if you accpet surrender in a fight, for exemple, you lose points, but there are situations where doing so is better in that
particular run. In other words, choosing the best option (gameplay-wise) can reduce your score.

Also, the game does not factor in scrap obtained for selling items, so even if you get a lot of stuff and sell all you can end up having a relatively low score. I often have amazing runs with certain ships, droping 7-8 valuable weapons and beating the boss, but my score is usually around mere 3600.

On a last note, scores can be inflated by reaching the exit of a sector and then moving left and defeating the rebel elite fighters (thus increasing the number of ships defeated). This can be entirely doable depending on your current ship loadout.

Sorry for long text.

Yeah a couple of people at least have farmed their way to 10k+ scores.(around pages 3-4 of that thread checking quickly)

Now I know you said that EASY mode people need not post, but I feel inclined to do so.


Because getting a high score on EASY is much more difficult than it is on NORMAL!!!

That 20% bonus is a lot of points.

The last game of FTL I played was the epic adventure where I unlocked the CRYSTAL CRUISER A. For some reason or another I decided to name the ship after my newborn son. I had a feeling this was going to be a special game and I got the drone recovery arm early so I went in to farming mode.

After I blew up every ship I could I took down the Flagship of the rebels and ended up with a new EASY high score of 9207.

It was one of the most memorable gaming moments I have ever had.


Good hunting out there Captians!

Ah ah ah, that's absurdly good LONCHIVAR!

You deserved it, after all the pain with the Crystal Ship. LONCHIVAR: high score of the year.
